Les Projectionnistes biography
Coming from diverse backgrounds the musicians that make up Les Projectionnistes deliver a mixture of musical influences in their music, ranging from rock, jazz, brass band, avant-garde patches, movie soundtracks, some punk and then some. All of these result in a coherent and dynamic outcome, melodic and catchy, explorative and appealing.
This Quebecois based band was formed in 1996 and have released so far two albums; Copie zéro (1999) and Vue (2005). They have performed and left very good impressions in various places - Montreal Inter-national Jazz Festival , at the Vancouver Jazz Festival and at Ottawa Jazz Festival, at AMG EdgeFest in Ann Arbor U.S.A., the Rencontres de musique actuelle at Usine C, at Quai des Brumes in Montreal, at the Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival and the Soirées des Musiques Fraîches in Québec City and in St-Malo, France.
Lead by Claude St-Jean who is the musical director of the brass band L'Orkestre des Pas Perdus and does collaborations with many other groups and projects (Miriodor and Espaces Sonores Illimites among others), the band's lineup consists of musicians who worked in the various musical venues in Montreal's rock, jazz and modern music scene and also do may collaborations with other bands and musicians.
Their albums are recommended if you like a mingling of styles and energetic music.

Review by Sean Trane
Special Collaborator Prog Folk

4 stars Another would-be Bernard Falaise project, but this time more an offshoot from Miridor, since Leclerc and St Jean are part of it. Behind the popular feast and merry-go-rounds artwork of the sleeve all but two of the tracks are penned by trombone and keyboards man Clause St Jean and the last two are from Falaise including the 11-mins finale Ballet Mécanique, an improv of a 1924 movie and it sticks out from the rest of the album like a sore thumb. I'm saying this because apart from that dissonant improv, the rest of the album is generally very accessible, sounding a bit like Miriodor

Right from the opening Hiboux, one can't help but being impressed at how enthralling this album is and while the whacky music is constantly changing direction, it remains very easily "followable" even by non-specialist. There is a certain Zappa-esque quality, but the humour remains instrumental. Despite the artwork, the music does not concentrate on the then-Miriodor fixation on Manouche/Klezmer music, even though it is still one of the influences, but mixed with some solid rock traits, including wild guitar solos (Ma Chérie), but trombone and sax as well. On some tracks, rhythmically speaking we're going into a wild fink ala RHCP - I kid you not, see the middle section of Balcon and the early Vacances tracks, even if the latter sounds also Discipline-era Crimson. In general, Les Projectionnistes have a wider spectrum than their mother group, in part due to a five-man line-up.Until the end of the second-last track Nuits Blanches, this is a very enjoyable album. Too bad for its musique concrete ending, though.

Another typical Ambiance Magnétique release, but this one should not scare you, despite the dissonant finale, because it is very accessible and filled with musical humour. It is enjoyable from the first listen, and no doubt it will grow on you, if you remember to edit the last track.
